Solidarity with Mexican Political Prisoner Jorge “Yorch” Esquivel Muñoz 

Friday, May 19, 2023


Jorge is being criminalized as part of an ongoing attack against the “okupache” squat in Mexico City. Despite the overwhelming evidence that proves his innocence, the arbitrary arrests and police brutality he has been subjected to, and a legal case that have been plagued with irregularities since day one of this set up, Jorge remains injustly locked up in the Reclusorio Oriente prison. His hearings have been constantly postponed, which is a common practice with political prisoners in Mexico since it allows the State to draw out the legal process  so as to keep them in prison as long as possible. Jorge’s next hearing is this Friday, May 19th, and we need your support to demand justice for our compañero.

Sample text:
My name is _ and I am concerned for the political prisoner Jorge Emilio Esquivel Muñoz, currently being held at the Reclusorio Oriente prison in Mexico City. It is clear that this case is a set up and that he is being criminalized by for his political work as part of the “okupache” squat at the UNAM university because his case is filled with irregularities, he suffered arbitrary detentions and police brutality at the time of his arrests for the same case in 2016 and 2022, and the evidence proves his innocence. I demand that justice be served in Jorge’s hearing this Friday, May 19, 2023 and that he be released immediately.
